From the Newsletter of the National Archives in the UK comes the announcement of a new class: “Quest is a new training course specifically designed for visitors to the FRC who are just setting out on the trail of their ancestors. Taking a practical, hands-on approach to family history research, the two day course uses a series of case studies to introduce beginners to the basic sources available at the FRC. A pilot version of Quest will be held at the FRC on Friday 13 & Friday 20 October 2006.”

I seem to recall not so many years ago when archivists despised genealogists. how things have changed! Do any of the archives you use offer beginners genealogy classes? How frequently are they offered. Who teaches? What is taught? How successful are they in addressing the goals of the archive? The goals of learners? Your comments are welcome>
